The components of the Curitiba’s Bus Rapid Transit Rideability Improvement Project, include:
i) Lane Restructuring: Pavement improvements with passing lanes in the corridors, Greenroads® certification, traffic signal priority, signs, landscaping, accessibility, station improvements with intermodal integration (micromobility) and implementation of the Safe System as part of Curitiba’s Vida no Trânsito (Road Safety) Program.
ii) East-West Corridors: 66 bus stops over an extension of 22.5 km of concrete pavement, where ten stations will have merge-and-go and 23 stations drive-thru passing lanes. An additional 10.2 km of an external feeder network will go through pavement restructuring.
iii) South Corridor: 26 bus stops over an extension of 7.5 km. Concrete pavement will only be applied to the city block where the station is located. There will be nine stations with merge-and-go and four station with drive-thru passing lanes.
iii) Bus Terminals: Out of the four bus terminals in the Project, two of the operating bus terminals will go through infrastructure improvements, one reconstructed (at the same location) and one to be re-built at another location to support the integration of the East-West Corridor.
